attack the harder it is to understand why the obama white house consistently pushed forward this idea that the demonstration was really responsible, and it was spontaneous and linked to this anti-islam video when that initial reporting clearly pointed to al qaeda and this group called ansar al-sharia. megyn: we have been talking how they went even farther and jay carney told us there was no evidence that this was preplanned. catherine, thanks so much. yesterday president obama testified his administration's handling of the consulate attack that killed four americans. take a listen to this exchange went president and ed henry. >> i wanted to ask about the families of these four americans killed. sean smith's father ray said he believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. and i know you said you grieve for these four americans. that it's being investigated. but the families have been waiting for two months. i would like to -- for you to address the families if you can. on 9/11 as commander in chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> ed, you k
that the president would not be alerted to this fact? >> well, i can't speak for what is going on in the obama white house. bob mueller was my fbi director when i was the attorney general. i suspect at some point this summer bob mueller would have notified the attorney general. i have reason to believe general general petraeus is involved in an a extramarital relationship. now i would have taken that information, which i consider significant to the president quite frankly. i think the president would want to know that information. i think the president wants to know that the person who holds many of nation's secrets is engaged in conduct that reflects poor judgment. also, at the time, we now believe reporting is there was no breach of national security as a result of this relationship. i suspect in the summer we weren't really quite sure of that consequently it might be important for the president to know that in his conversations with david petraeus. for matters of national security i think this would be a reason why the president would want to know that the law enforcement community, that the fbi,
counterterrorism and counterespionage issues." yet the white house insists president obama didn't know of the affair until after the election. as for the investigation itself, we've got breaking news on that. we are joined by fran townsend, a member of the cia's external advisory board. she has the breaking news. fran, you've been talking to sources, what have you learned about possible legal fallout? >> it's interesting, anderson. what we understand is that paula broadwell had consented to the search of her homes, but after a discussion between her lawyers and the fbi, they decided to get a search warrant. we understand that they are reviewing documents, but based on what they've seen so far, they say that the classified material is, one, not substantial that they have seen and, two, while it may be a technical violation, it's not egregious. as a result of that, the law enforcement official told me they don't expect that there will be a prosecution related to the unauthorized release of classified information, but that ultimately, that's not a decision that the fbi will make. they wil
that president obama's performance among white voters in midwest states like ohio, like wisconsin, like iowa is completely different than it was nationally and substantially different in states measured by the exit poll. >> quickly, i have to get your comments on what's happening between senator john mccain and a few other senators and the president. john mccain was on the "today" show this morning. he was asked, mark, about susan rice and his already -- i guess he's saying he would stand in the way of her being secretary of state. he was asked about condoleezza rice and supporting her during obvious controversial times. let's play that. >> you said opponents of condoleezza rice were expressing sour grapes after an election loss. why is this different? >> because every intelligence agency in the world, including the british, believe that iraq had weapons of mass destruction. that was an entirely different situation. four americans died that didn't have to die. >> so, mark, the double-standard at least as some alleged here, senator mccain does not see it. >> this goes to the whole point that
. but the president notes the investigation is still going on. president obama held his first white house news conference of his new term today. reporters asked him whether investigators should have informed the white house about the scandal before the election. >> what i will say is, is that if, um, it is also possible that had we been told, then you would be sitting here asking a question about why were you interfering in a criminal investigation. >> shepard: the president said he thinks it's best if we just wait to get more information about how all of this unfolded. no question it is complicated so here is a bit of a recap of all the cast members and plot twists in this ongoing well soap opera. last week then cia director david petraeus resigned as we learned that he had been sleeping with his biographer paula broadwell. that affair came out after the fbi started investigating paula broadwell for allegedly sending emails to another woman jill kellily a friend of david petraeus family. curing the fbi investigation, agents uncovered thousands of pages of emails between jill kelley and genera
and headache relief. >>> right now president obama she hadding back to the white house after touring portions of new york that were hardest-hit by superstorm standee nearly three weeks ago. more than 100 deaths are blamed, and millions lost power with tens of thousands still in the dark. the president met with first responders and families this afternoon flanked by new york governor andrew cuomo, the state's two senators and his secretaries of housing and homeland security. >> people still need emergency help. they still need heat. they still need power. they still need food. they still need shelters. kids are still trying to figure out where they're going to go to school. so there's a lot of short-term immediate stuff that has to be dealt with, and we are going to make sure that we stay here as long as people need that immediate help. that's fema's primary task. >> also on hand this time around was new york city mayor bloomberg who didn't give the president a photo-op last time in town but gave him a post-storm re-election endorsement citing obama's position on climate charge. just yesterday
about after president obama's first white house news conference in eight months. it covered everything from the budget crisis to libya, to the david petraeus scandal. >> the president himself said that so much has happened lately people forget the election of just a week ago. nancy cordes covered the news conference. she's at the white house. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president came to the east room of the white house hoping to push his message on the fiscal cliff and he did but he also got pressed with a number of questions about his handling of foreign policy and national security and one question in particular got a rise out of him about his u.n. ambassador, susan rice. in his first full press conference since march president obama was asked about the criticism of u.n. ambassador susan rice. his likely choice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> besmerch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: rice has come under fire for stating that the september attack on an american consulate in libya appeared to be the result of a spontaneous demonst
and combative president obama who strode to the white house lecturn today for his first press conference since winning his second term. at the top of his agenda, a first step towards saving the country's economy were dropping off the so-called fiscal cliff which one of our guest tonight more aptly calls the austerity bomb. >> pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on, and that's to keep the middle class taxes low. >> eliot: the president also emphasized what he would not do a sending time to make a tax deal with house republicans. >> obama: what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> eliot: mr. obama also waded into the scandal that saw general david petraeus step down as director of the c.i.a. he offered assurances that damage from petraeus' affair was at least so far con
counsel to president obama. welcome mr. craig. let me lay the cards on the table, because i find it inconceivable that the white house would have had zero knowledge of an fbi investigation with the director of the cia and tell me why i should not be incredulous. >> you should not be so excited over that issue. the fbi conducts many, many investigations and hundreds of them, and sometimes they are high profile and some not so high profile. this is high profile, but routinely and ordinarily the fbi reports through justice department, and the justice department does not notify the white house tor president about investigations that are under way. my experience is that we got told about indictments that were go ing to be coming forward or about arrests that were going to be made, but we were not consulted or informed about investigations underway. there are a lot of good reasons for that. this is not something that happens with the democratic attorney general, but republican attorney general as well. >> right. let me just jump in, there because it is not any old ordinary investigatio
that the white house made and president obama has it right if there was a criticism to be made, it was in the judgment in retrospect, but certainly, i don't understand impugning the sincerity for doing what ambassador rice is there to do and speaking what she was told to say. >> and someone who obviously operated with president clinton through a very well publicized affair, what do you make of ambassador rice is there to do and speaking what she was told to say. >> and someone who obviously operated with president clinton through a very well publicized affair, what do you make of general petraeus now that we have worked out that this is just about sex and not about secrets being passed or anything else, should he have resigned? >> well, it is his personal decision, and i don't question his decision. i personally don't think that he should have been asked to resign. it is not necessary for him to resign, and i agree with general kimmet that he should look forward to a next chapter in his life. he is a great and courageous man with a personal weakness that many people, men and wo
an opening statement, mr. obama immediately faced questions on how the petraeus scandal affected his white house. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: and the president refused to pass judgment on the investigation. >> i am withholding judgment on how the entire process surrounding general petraeus came up. >> reporter: the real fireworks came when the president was asked about negative comments from republican senators on the possibility that u.n. ambassador susan rice could become secretary of state. >> we'll do everything to block the nomination within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> i don't trust her -- and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better, and if she didn't know better she shouldn't be the voice of america >> reporter: he referred to rice's appearance on "meet the press" days after the benghazi attack. >> but this is a spontaneous reaction to a video. >> reporter: today, the president was vis

. >>> another keeping them honest rosht, why was president obama kept in the dark about cia director david petraeus' affair with paula broadwell until after the election. attorney general eric holder knew in late summer of at fair. that information according to the white house was never passed until months later. consider this, the director of the c.i.a. was having an extramarital affair, communicating with his mistress via an unsecure e-mail account and potentially putting national security at risk. obama was asked about the investigation today during the news conference. >> i am withholding judgment. with respect to how the entire process surrounding general petraeus came up. we don't have all of the information yet. but i want to say that i have a lot of confidence generally in the fbi and they have a difficult job. and so i'm going to wait and see. >> the white house says there are protocols, that's the word they used, that must be followed when notifying the white house about the criminal investigation. there is a 2007 memo by then attorney general michael mukasey about notifying the
together at the white house? well, kind of. president obama's hosting the screening of "lincoln" tonight and some historians aren't too thrilled about what's in that movie that's coming up next. >>> but first -- imagine being separated from your family for a year. for more than 100 soldiers from the d.c. national guard and army reserves, that's how long it's been since they have been home. and we were there for their reunion. >> aah! >> i'm happy. >> oh my god! >> all right. how you doing? >> hi. >> good to see you. welcome home. >> been in america again, it's like everything you always dreamed of. >> a bunch of mountains, a bunch of rocks. i'm happy to be back and see grass. >> welcome back, man. glad to see you, man. love you, boy. >> likewise. >> yeah. >> love you guys. >> carried this around me every day. she gave it to me to remind me of what i got back at home and make sure i get back safe. you know? >> welcome home! welcome home! >> thank you. >> hey, man. welcome home! >> welcome back 273rd. >> daddy loves you. >> yes. i love it. it feels good. it feels very good. to know that pe
. president obama appeared before reporters at the white house on wednesday for his first news conference since winning his second term. he made some of his most extensive comments on climate change to date, acknowledging that his administration had fallen short in taking on global warming. >> we have not done as much as we need to. what i am going to be doing over the next several weeks it, next several months, is having a conversation with scientists, engineers, and elected officials to find out what more can we do to make short-term progress in reducing carbons, and then working through an education process that i think it is necessary, a conversation across the country, about what realistically can do long term. >> despite hard to take action on climate change, obama said he will not advance any environmental policy that override economic concerns. >> there is no doubt that for us to take on climate change and a serious way would involve making some tough political choices. understandably, i think the american people right now have been so focused and will continue to focus on our eco

[video clip] >> why is it that anybody including our ambassadors to the united nations would believe spontaneous demonstrations are composed of people with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, and heavy weapons? nobody believes that. why did president obama insists that he labeled the defense an act of terrorism on september 12 when we know now -- i repeat, we know now in an interview on the same day he refused to characterize the attacks in this way and spent two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his address to the united nations on september 25? we need a select committee. americans deserve to know. the families of those slain americans need to know. why in the world the administration or our friends and the oth

, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se
